.hy1 File Extension

Developer: Corel
File type: Ventura Publisher Hyphenation File
You're here because you have a file that has a file extension ending in .hy1. Files with the file extension .hy1 can only be launched by certain applications. It's possible that .hy1 files are data files rather than documents or media, which means they're not meant to be viewed at all.

what is a .hy1 file?

The content of a Ventura Publisher hyphenation file is implemented with text formatting specifications and data encoding standards used for storing data in the HY1 file format. The pieces of data saved in these Ventura Publisher hyphenation files include hyphenation rules and exceptions implemented by the American and British English language for words that can be found in most dictionary programs and applets. This means the instructions and rules encoded in a HY1 file are used to determine the correct division of certain words into its hypenated forms. Affixed with the .hy1 extension, these Ventura Publisher files are used by the Ventura Publisher application, and the rules stored in these .hy1 files can be modified using this program, while users can also add new hyphenation instructions or configurations to a HY1 file with the Ventura Publisher software.

how to open a .hy1 file?

Launch a .hy1 file, or any other file on your PC, by double-clicking it. If your file associations are set up correctly, the application that's meant to open your .hy1 file will open it. It's possible you may need to download or purchase the correct application. It's also possible that you have the correct application on your PC, but .hy1 files aren't yet associated with it. In this case, when you try to open a .hy1 file, you can tell Windows which application is the correct one for that file. From then on, opening a  .hy1 file will open the correct application.

Ventura Publisher Hyphenation Algorithm

Ventura Publisher Hyphenation Algorithm

Ventura Publisher Hyphenation Algorithm is a file that is given the HY2 extension format. Every computer filename ends in a period followed by a three-letter extension that identifies the file type. This three-letter suffix indicates the encoding or file format used to create the file, and identifies the associated program that will enable users to open and view the document. Windows, for example, will prompt users to select a program to try opening a file if it does not automatically identify the file format. Double-clicking the file will allow the PC to decide which default application should open the file. When encountering the HY2 file extension, users can use Notepad or another text editor to open the file. A text editor like Notepad may be able to display the file contents since some extensions are only text-files. Another option is to convert the HY2 file to another format by using a File Conversion Online Service or a software program that can convert the HY2 to another file format.

a word of warning

Be careful not to rename the extension on .hy1 files, or any other files. This will not change the file type. Only special conversion software can change a file from one file type to another.

what is a file extension?

A file extension is the set of three or four characters at the end of a filename; in this case, .hy1. File extensions tell you what type of file it is, and tell Windows what programs can open it. Windows often associates a default program to each file extension, so that when you double-click the file, the program launches automatically. When that program is no longer on your PC, you can sometimes get an error when you try to open the associated file.
